Warnings - GB

NOTE: The PHS1 servo positioning head contains pre-loaded spring elements which can be dangerous if any attempt is made to disassemble the head.

Pinch hazards exist between moving parts and between moving and static parts. Do not hold the probe head during movements, or when manually changing a probe.

Beware of unexpected movement. The user should remain outside the full working envelope of probe head / extension / probe combinations.

In all applications involving the use of machine tools or CMMs, eye protection is recommended.

There are external air pipes on certain installations. Care should be taken to ensure that the pipes are securely fastened to the barbed air fittings.

For instructions regarding the safe cleaning of Renishaw products, refer to the maintenance information in the relevant product documentation.

Remove power before performing any maintenance operations.

Refer to the machine supplier's operating instructions.

NOTE: There are no mains powered units in the PHS1 system.

It is the machine supplier's responsibility to ensure that the user is made aware of any hazards involved in operation, including those mentioned in Renishaw product documentation, and to ensure that adequate guards and safety interlocks are provided.

Under certain circumstances the probe signal may falsely indicate a probe-seated condition. Do not rely on probe signals to stop machine movement.

The expected method of providing an emergency stop for Renishaw products is to remove power.
